this album is called 'reunion tour' because of this inside joke (so inside, it almost exclusively included myself) about my solo projects, that took the form of an imaginary band, different parts of me playing different instruments. the original name of the 'band' was 'estropiados (maimed, in portuguese) big band'. the title of the album is itself a joke inside this other joke, that the band is back together and out of ideas (though hopefully not this last part).

the album consists of remixed and remastered versions of tracks from the 'metropolis' - 'antifragility' period, because I convinced myself that I had gotten really good at mixing and mastering, to the point where you actually can hear the improvement in texture - and therefore, or at least you would expect so, in enjoyment. hopefully, the listener will feel the same way.

making music is a personal exercise. releasing that music is the opposite. this combination of opposites is a form of growing up in public and this album is the musical equivalent of looking at old photo albums in a new light, seen through the eyes of the future, enhanced by experience. but mostly by compressors and equalizers.

a solo musical venture that can somewhat be described by the incredibly meaningless term 'Psychedelic Jazz Rock'. for metadata purposes, though, it's great.

Track Name: envy
give it to me
I want it
cause you have it
and I'm envious

I covet
ever since I was a little boy
and I bet there's something out there
for me to destroy

and you vote to get yours
and I'll vote to get mine
and it turns back again
til it wipes out mankind

cause you're envious
and you'll lead this world to die
in the pit where your mind is
and where all your wishes lie
